|300 g||Sealord Simply Natural Calamari Rings, defrosted|
|2 tbsp||Lemon juice, fresh|
|1 tbsp||Red wine vinegar|
|⅓ cup||Extra virgin olive oil|
|2 cloves||Garlic, minced|
|¼ tsp||Black pepper|
|1||Red onion, small, thinly sliced|
|⅓ cup||Kalamata olives, pitted, halved lengthwise|
|2 cups||Cherry tomatoes, or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered if large|
|2 stalks||Celery, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices|
|1 cup||Fresh Italian parsley, loosely packed|
- Cook defrosted Calamari Rings in a pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, until just opaque (approximately 40 to 60 seconds).
- Drain in a colander and immediately transfer to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking.
- When the Calamari Rings are cool, drain and pat dry.
- In a small bowl, combine and whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper (to taste) and stand for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine Calamari Rings, olives, tomatoes, celery and parsley in a large bowl.
- Toss with dressing and season with salt and pepper if desired. Let stand at least 15 minutes to allow flavors to develop.
- Either serve immediately or chill for up to 8 hours. If chilled, remove from fridge one hour before serving.
TIP: To thaw the Calamari Rings, place sealed bag in a sink of water for 10 to 15 minutes.
